IgA Nephropathy and Water Retention
Water retention is very common among IgA Nephropathy patients. It causes swelling and puffiness in eyelid, face, legs, ankles, feet, lung, etc. The more severe your disease, the more heavy your water retention. Now go on reading to learn more information.

Causes of water retention for IgA Nephropathy patients

Kidneys are responsible to filter water out of body. When your kidneys do not work normally, it is likely for you to suffer from water retention. Besides, water retention may be associated with massive protein leakage. Proteinuria is a common symptom of IgA Nephropathy. When a lot of protein goes out of body, plasma colloid osmotic pressure will decrease, and then fluid will go from blood into tissues, leading to swelling.

Treatment of water retention for IgA Nephropathy patients

If your water retention is very slight, for example, it only appears in your eyelid, no treatment is needed. If it is very severe, water pills or diuretics may have to be used to flush out the excess fluid. If you have proteinuria, steroids or immunosuppressants are prescribed to inhibit kidney inflammation and stop protein leakage.

These medications are only temporary medical relief. If you want to get a permanent control, you can try Toxin-Removing Treatment. It is a combined Chinese medicine treatment, which can make you sweat and increase your urine output and improve bowel movement to remove waste products and excess fluid out of body. It can also improve blood circulation and increase blood flow into damaged kidneys to supply them with enough essential elements such as oxygen, nutrients and active ingredients of medicine to speed up kidney recovery. Besides, it can help regulate the abnormal immune system to reduce the production of IgA immune complexes so as to decrease kidney inflammation. After about one week’s treatment, your water retention will vanish. After about half month’s treatment, your high creatinine level, high BUN and high uric acid level will decline. Symptoms such as back pain, proteinuria, blood urine and weakness will get relieved. After about one month’s treatment, your kidney function will increase gradually. And then excess water can be passed out of body naturally.

Water retention is easy to be controlled with proper treatment, but if you want to prevent it from relapsing, you should treat the disease from the root.
